I have spent the past ten years working in the investment industry and observing the habits of wealthy people. It wasn't until a year ago I really learned how money works, how wealth is created and how powerful our mind is to help us unleash our talents and abilities to seize our dreams. I teach others how they can have it all (money & time). I'm passionate about helping others elevate what I call their wellth (wealth & wellbeing). I love to read books on personal growth, health and entrepreneurialism. I'm a runner, yogi, ex- pastry chef and pit bull lover! I believe you have greatness within you just waiting to be unleashed!
